## Little Johnny #3

Math brain teasers require computations to solve.

 Puzzle ID: #34041 Fun: (2.7) Difficulty: (2.69) Category: Math Submitted By: fishmed

Little Johnny was at it again.

His big brother had some small race cars that he wanted to play with, and his brother did not want him to have them.

Finally, he made a deal with Little Johnny. If he could figure out the math problem that his teacher had given them that afternoon, he'd let him have the cars for a week.

The problem was to figure out the following.

IT + TAKES + A + LITTLE = EFFORT

The numbers 0-9 are used and the teacher had already told them that A = 9 and E = 7. Little Johnny's brother could not figure it out, so he knew that he'd be safe.

Ten minutes later, Little Johnny's mother was watching while his big brother grudgingly gave up his cars for a week.

Can you figure out what the letters represent, like Little Johnny?

 pistons_32_rip Nov 25, 2006 yay i FINALLY get to be the first to comment!!!!! good one, it took 4ever but i finally got it! kman613 Nov 27, 2006 that one took some effort on my part! good one Dan141 Dec 04, 2006 Yeah i liked it opqpop Sep 11, 2010 Not bad, though it's quite tedious... Here are some hints: 1. Figure out what L is 2. Figure out what S is 3. This is the hard part. Figure out what I is. Once you've got that, you know what R is. 4. Then it's pretty easy to fit the remaining 4 numbers. Think about what T can be.
